Comprehensive Plan


The purpose of Kennebunk’s Comprehensive Plan is to establish the vision of the community based on the public’s perceptions of what the character of the Town is and should be as we move forward over the next decade and beyond. The Plan provides guidance to public and private decision makers regarding development of the Town; sets goals, policies and strategies for managing public infrastructure, municipal services, and residential and commercial growth; and provides a framework for the development and updating of the Town’s zoning and other land use ordinances, as well as a legal basis for the ordinances.
